The National Weather Service says Verona should be on flood watch from 6 a.m. Monday morning through 6 p.m. Tuesday evening, with the possibility of 2 to 6 inches of rain. To put that in perspective, the normal rainfall for the entire month of October is 3.93 inches, according to a Rutgers University analysis of rainfall from 1895 to 2012.

Winds from Hurricane Sandy are expected to be from 35 to 55 miles per hour, with gusts of 70 to 80 mph.

To help you keep an eye on the potential for damage here, MyVeronaNJ.com has put maps below showing the storm’s path and projected storm surge. These maps will be updated automatically throughout the day, so check back often for the latest news.

We are also keeping an eye on the rivers around our area. This map, from the U.S. Geological Survey’s Water Watch department, shows the real-time water flow. Mouse over any of the dots to see current conditions in our area. We’ve also put links below to video cameras trained on several New Jersey beaches in case you want to see what’s happening to your shore house, or you can follow the crowd-sourced Jersey Shore Hurricane News.
